The Festival

In light of the continuing COVID restrictions, organisers of the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues have made the decision not to proceed with the 2021 festival.  

The Festival plans to return in 2022 to its traditional long weekend dates leading up to the Melbourne Cup. The program will be announced in April at a special launch event in Wangaratta.  

We thank our audiences and artists and look forward to returning live in 2022.
